The Pokemon fan game Pokemon Uranium is no more.
Anything Pokemon is super hot these days because of Pokemon Go. A fan made Pokemon game that was 9 years in the making experienced the dark side of success. Just days after the game got finally released, Nintendo has its lawyers take it down. That is quite ironic. If the developers would have released Pokemon Uranium in June, nobody would have cared. The developers said in a statement that after 1,500,000 downloads they have been notified of multiple takedown notices from lawyers representing Nintendo of America.

The developers took down the files, but obviously the game is out in the wild and available on file sharing services. The Pokemon Uranium makers are no longer providing official download links for the game through their website.
The team warns to be careful downloading the game from unknown sources as the files could be hacked and contain trojan code.
It is interesting that in this case Nintendo has been sending lawyers. In most Pokemon Go legal actions The Pokemon Company took the lead.
